Batch #3. Dark fruit mahogany in color. Nice tart component but far from overbearing. A must try for dark saison\flanders\old bruin fans. Fantastic beer. Personally would just prefer more oak presence in a barrel aged offering. More oak in this would be lights out.

Poured from a wax topped bottle ( 2013 Batch #2) into a snifter, the beer is a dark, slightly hazed, blood red coloring, with a halo of off-white head. Dark and opaque. Nose of subtle sour funk, tart grape must, berry sweetness, stone fruit, tannins, and earthy notes. Flavors are cherry and grape forward, tart and sour, with a heavily roasted and sugary backbone, woody undertones, and a solid, dry, red wine character. Dry, slick bodied, with a tart grape and berry aftertaste. Dry throughout, straight through to the finish, with a lingering tart feel. Damn near perfect beer!
